Three kids, a wonderful husband, a dog, and a cat. What else do you need? Maybe a little more time in the day! I spend most of my time playing and cooking with my kids, and it is time well spent! We have a very diverse menu in our house, we eat thai, greek, korean... I love exposing my family to new foods!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! I think I've found the perfect chocolate cake. I make a pretty great greek meal too. It's more out of necessity, since we don't have any greek establishments in our litte town.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We make an awesome breakfast on the weekends when dad's home, everyone gets in on it! My daughter and I make the best cookies. We make a simple butter cookie dough and cut out various shapes. I think we have like 200 cutters in just about every shape. Then we make a few different colors of frosting and go to town!
My cooking triumphs
My Christmas Prime Rib, Chicken Pot Pie, Bread Pudding and Tiramisu Cake. I've also learned to burn and cut myself a lot less over the years!
My cooking tragedies
So, so many... I was horrible with pancakes for years! For some reason I just couldn't get the hang of them. I'm over it now, but it took a while. I also go back and forth with roasts, mainly chuck roasts in the crockpot...they always end up really blah. So, I stick with the traditional oven roasting and a better cut. But every now and then I decide to try again and it always ends up greasy and gross!
